Kanye West and French Montana collaborator Max B is celebrating. In a new Instagram post (above), the rapper writes that his prison sentence has been cut to 12 years, meaning he should be released at some point in 2021.
In his caption, the OG wavy rapper explained that he was originally sentenced to 75 years in prison, which was then cut down to 20 before getting another eight years shaved off. He was sentenced in 2009 on conspiracy charges related to armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and felony murder. In 2016, he took a 20-year plea bargain for aggravated manslaughter.
According to Complex, French Montana reportedly hit up Kim Kardashian to help free the rapper. During an interview with Zane Lowe, Montana said, “Me and Kim was talking about getting Max B home from jail. ’Cause she’s doing the whole thing… So, like, for her to even reach out and do that I felt like that was powerful. A lot of people don’t see things like that.”
Max B has collaborated on a number of verses during his time in prison, even releasing a mixtape titled Toothy Wavy in 2012. Listen to it here.
